    GP goes 4t


    It's finally happening. Honda has sponsored a GP250 class using a moriwaki modified CRF250X in a 125GP chasis. It will be sold through honda dealers to 12-16 year old racers only. 10K per event in prize money!!!

    Pretty sweet.
    But they'll have to patch up that gas tank. It looks like
    it leaks !

    More seriously, it must cost a pretty penny though, no?
    You thinking about one? It would have a bit more oomph
    over your old 125 I'd think.

    The tanks are handmade and have a cover not shown in the pic. I'm not interested in one as a 250 single will never have the go of a 125GP motor. This is geared towards kids because they just can't get the umph out of them without SERIOUS money and development. As is they will cost 11,500, but you could win much of that back in one season.

    I would, however, be interested in a 250GP chasis built around a bigger motor, like a 450 or 560 single, or perhaps a 650 twin. But my racing days are over for now...

    That's pretty cool. Think they'll bring an event or two to NHMS?

    It's running with USGPRU only. I haven't checked their new schedule, so I'm not sure about NHMS.

    I don't think we'll see them back

    Neal said this offseason when they were asking where people wanted to go that everyone pleaded not to go back to loudon
